Our Approach to Health

In the current model of medicine, we have watched Diabetes, Heart Disease, Cancer, and
Autoimmune disease steadily increase over the past 50 years. We have watched cases of mental health
disorders, such as Anxiety, Depression, and Suicide, double and triple, in the year of 2020 alone. We ask
ourselves, with all the medical technologies of the 21 st century, why are diseases, that are 100%
preventable, getting worse?

The partial answer includes the fact that the conventional model of medicine focuses on
‘Disease Care’, not ‘Health Care’. Up to 80% of health conditions can be resolved without the treatment
of a physician. However, our current system focuses on placing band-aids on symptoms, instead of
treating the root causes. This is partially due to doctors not receiving the kind of education in medical
school to treat the root cause, and due to the overwhelming dependency on the medical system that
leaves Doctors strapped for time. The combination of these incongruity’s has led to a model of medicine
that manages illness, after it has become a disease: disease care.
Our paradigm at Balance Integrative Medicine involves a mixture of therapeutics that treat the
root causes of illness. Our approach involves Functional Medicine, which is a western approach to treat
the causes, not the symptoms; Traditional Chinese Medicine, which includes Acupuncture, Cupping,
Herbal Medicine, Moxibustion, Gua Sha, and more; Lifestyle Behavioral Therapy, which is an approach
to mental health; and Functional Exercise, which maintains your health after you have healed.
Whenever the root cause of illness gets treated, not only do symptoms get better, but your
body’s natural regenerative abilities get stronger. When your body can regenerate, health and vitality
get much stronger and we can reverse the clock on aging. And in many cases, we have seen diseases go
into remission.
However, our motivation does not only involve the numbers on your bloodwork or how you
feel-it’s about how you show up in your life. We want to see you get back to doing the things you love.
Whether that involves having the physical strength to throw the ball with your children without having
any pain, having the energy to go for long hikes or continue to play sports, or to be able to have the
mental energy and endurance to focus on intellectual activities. We want to see you enjoy spending
time with your loved ones without your health holding you back. Because what is living, if you can’t
enjoy your life?
We take your interests seriously and commit to doing everything in our power to get you back
to your highest possible potential.
